Happy May! I am loving this sunshine! It seems like we have gone from Winter to Summer, not much of a Spring, yet! I am not going to complain after all of the rain we had, but, ideally, some 70 degree weather days would be perfect! This picture is from the Herb/ Plant Festival at Maymont. It was such a great day. I created a Festival Guide on the other site I publish, and I reference it all the time. There are so many happening around Richmond and some of them are great for our kids. (Side note, I CUT ALL my hair, and after a few weeks, have grown to love it- no matter the age, change can be hard!)

I have 2 suggestions this month. The first is not related to anything special needs related. It was one of my 2019 goals to do more personal escape reading. Just to get away. I am off to a decent start and in love, with the book, I am reading now.

So it’s time for your first visit to the gynecologist! How do you know when it’s time to go? What can you expect? What questions do you need to ask? How can you make it an easier experience? For all women, their first visit to the gynecologist can be intimidating but I’m here to tell you it should not be scary or painful.
Mother’s Day is always a day that I would look forward to yet I use to struggle with being disappointed. I did it to myself and realized it was because I wasn’t always letting my family know what I needed. I wanted the element of surprise, then wondered why they got it all wrong. So, it got me thinking about the things that would make me happy and things I would love to receive. For me, it is not about jewelry, flowers or fancy restaurants. It is about being together and making memories. On the receiving end, the gifts that make me happy are the ones I can do by myself and/ or help me take care of myself.
Like acne and growth spurts, test anxiety is a pretty normal part of being a kid. Being nervous about taking tests isn’t reserved for students with learning disabilities, although these children are often especially prone to test anxiety. As a parent, you might feel powerless as you watch your child struggle with fear about an upcoming quiz or exam. You can’t take the test for them, but there are some strategies you can use to help your student relax and prepare.
